​Dad Welcomes Baby With His Daughter’s Ex-Boyfriend

​Dad Welcomes Baby With His Daughter’s Ex-Boyfriend

A man has welcomed a baby girl with his daughter's ex-boyfriend, having revealed the happy news on Instagram.

Barrie Drewitt-Barlow, 50, has been in the news previously for his relationship with Scott Hutchinson, 25, who just so happens to be the ex-boyfriend of his eldest daughter Saffron, 20.

Back in March, the couple announced they were expecting their first child together, saying they were using a surrogate who had fallen pregnant on their first attempt.

But while they had said their child was due in October, an Instagram post on Barrie's profile - where he has more than 40,000 followers - announced that baby Valentina Willow Drewitt-Barlow had been born 'almost a month early'.

Barrie wrote: "Welcome to the world our beautiful daughter - Valentina Willow Drewitt-Barlow.

"Our girl is almost a month early but she is perfect.

Barrie and his former husband Tony Drewitt-Barlow first hit headlines in 1999 after they became the first gay men in the UK to father twins born through surrogacy.

Dad Gets Engaged To Daughter’s Ex Boyfriend While All Three Are On Holiday Together

published at2 months ago

But after 32 years of marriage, the two split, and Barrie began dating Scott - who his daughter Saffron briefly dated - and last month they got engaged while on holiday.

Speaking to The Sun about the pregnancy earlier this year, Barrie originally said they were planning to have triplets.

He said: "I am overjoyed to share the news that Scott and I are pregnant with triplet girls.

"We are using a surrogate and she's fallen pregnant at the first attempt. Our family has too many boys and too much testosterone!

"So we used sex selection to even things out. We know we are having girls. Tony is excited too, although it does underline that our marriage really is over after all these years, so it is very bittersweet.

"But we are all going to remain living under the same roof. Tony is Dad, I'm Daddy and while at the moment Scott is stepdad, soon he's going to be Daddy Two.

"We are happy, we want to co-parent our kids and that's all that matters. If people don't get it, that's their problem, not ours."

An Instagram update said the couple were then expecting a 'baby girl', with photos from the scan accompanying the post.
